Over The Top Helicopters Wine by Invitation

'Drop in' and collect the Patriarch of Otago’s Pinot Noir from his private vineyard. Reap the benefit of his knowledge of history, soil, wines, climate and the grape as you helicopter to a selection of local vineyards. Meet the winemakers, pipette from the barrel and discover the heart of alpine viticulture, savouring the flavours over a remote gourmet luncheon.

The Wine by Invitation is truly a winelovers dream in which you have an expert on board who will give you the birds eye view of our vineyards in which you have between 3 – 5 landings and tastings including lunch, this one we would without doubt recommend.
